Finally: easy guest communication

Verified case study Hotel Tech Report has reached out to hoteliers at Schokoladenhotel to verify this case study.
It is clear that guest care is not just a one-man job. But people often don't realize how many people communicate with the guest at the end of the process, from the inquiry to the stay to the repeat booking.
Why it matters: Confusion, duplicate communication and misinformation are inevitable here - unless very good process structures have been developed.
  • Smart Host offers automated guest communication that is clear and easy to use for everyone involved from the team with just a few clicks. This all-in-one solution gives us control over when and what we communicate to our guests without having to put much effort in it.

Top 3 Core Objectives: Kathlyn Voss reveals: "We were looking for a tool with which we could expand and professionalize our CRM.
  • Targeted newsletter marketing: No more ill-conceived mass mailings!

  • Clear customer communication: Transparency for all hotel employees in all written communication channels with the guest
